Unformatted text preview: α radiation, ( μ / ρ ) Si =65.32, ( μ / ρ ) O = 11.03. Silica glass is SiO 2 . Atomic weights, Si:28.1, O:16. Weight fraction of Si: 28.1/(28.1+2x16) =28.1/60.1=0.468; that of O=32/60.1=0.532. ( μ / ρ ) SiO2 = 0.468x65.32+0.532x11.03 =36.438. I x = I exp [-36.438x2.3x0.01] = I exp[-0.838] = 0.433I o 4. What is the shortest wavelength of x-ray generated when 30 kV is applied to a x-ray tube? λ SWL = 12400/V = 12400/30,000= 0.413 Å ....
